Outside of gaming, 2017 will be be a year to remember – or one you want to forget. It’s personally been one of my best years, as I’ve started a new day job, bought a house, and feel like a proper-ass adult for the first time a long time. But we’re here about games, and what a wild ride and great year for games 2017 was. This has been the hardest list to assemble for the 2,017th year in a row, because not only did I play so many games, but there were a lot to like and even love – 2018 has a lot to live up to.
Ed has played a smattering of games throughout the year. This was a busy year personally for him, with a day job and getting married, but he still made time to play games. Here’s his personal favorites in a very specific order from this year.
Ed has been hard at work planning a wedding, but in the meantime, has found time for some games this year. He’s planted and harvested in Stardew Valley, cooking under pressure in Overcooked, and what else? Well, you’re just gonna have to see where these games shook out on his list.
To say that 2016 has been an interesting year would be a drastic understatement. The year has put us through our paces, bringing with it an unrelenting series of cultural events great and terrible that are sure to leave a lasting mark for decades to come. If the year’s events were a sine wave, both its frequency and amplitude would stand out amongst those of other recent years. Happily, I’d say that most of the big things to hit the gaming scene in 2016 were perched atop the peaks of those waves. It feels like those of us in the gaming community say this every year, but it truly has never been a better time to be a gamer. We’ve had some really excellent titles to sink our teeth into, a surprising number of which were deliveries on development promises that have been keeping us hungry for over five or even as much as ten years.
Klein has actually had more time for games this year, and has rounded-up a powerful Top 10 Games he’s played in 2016.

To date, Harry has now only written two reviews for Saving Content, but he plays lots of games we are otherwise already covering.

Myst would be Scott’s #1 game every year, but there’s new games to play instead. Scott is the Editor-in-Chief of this very site in which you are looking at.

Having a license plate read “TIHSHO” is pretty cool thing when you read it backwards. What’s also cool, is how many videogames came out in 2015, so picking only 10 games out of entire year of great games is no easy task. Here’s what Ed found to be the best of the year.
